Celebrate "CHANGE" at Etta's Equinox Event

Sept. 11, 2020

This event is a chance for us to look up at the same night sky and share our work in Bolivia across the Northern Hemisphere. Together we can reach our fundraising goals and spread awareness around projects happening right now in Bolivia. Don’t miss our online auction and live conversations presented by our Bolivia staff.

***ONLINE AUCTION: Thursday, September 17 – Sunday, September 20, 2020***

The world may look a little different these days and so does our auction. Etta’s Equinox Event kicks off on Thursday, September 17 with the unveiling of our virtual auction featuring dozens of hand-picked items curated by our auction committee.

Bid on packages that are equipped with “Educational Enhancement” tools to help in your home-schooling lesson plans, such as A Day with Draft Horses in Southworth, WA or Pie Making Workshop. Find unique items, like a Chinese Wedding Basket from the 1800s or imports from Italy, featuring A Beautiful Italian Tablecloth or Leather Purse. And course it wouldn’t be our auction without one-of-a-kind, handmade items, like A Trio of Infused Sprits or Women’s Rainbow Knit Sweater.

Ready to see the auction? It’s free to view items, but what fun is that? We need your help to set opening bids and drive bidding competition during the event. Create your account through Greater Giving to start the bidding this Thursday, September 17.

***LIVE CONVERSATIONS:: Thursday, September 17 & Friday, September 18 ***

Education creates a deeper connection with the world. Join Etta Projects during our live conversations from Bolivia this Thursday AND Friday at 4:00pm PST (7:00pm EST).
